Charlton Heston Dead at 84


He died last night, apparently quietly from what I have heard.

The man made some great movies - Ben Hur, Ten Commandments, El Cid, as well as some incredible stinkers (at least in my opinion) such as Soylent Green, and Omega Man; His real contribution though is cultural. He stood up for what he thought was right whether it was marching with Martin Luther King Jr. or serving as the face of the NRA. He staked out the position he believed in and held it with some style and dignity.

Hopefully he won't out Moses Moses now that he is dead.
